Kittaka Dashed Stripes Shades

Size Guide Right

The uneveness of the pattern sometimes makes it look like the pattern reverses: for such a simple pattern it creates a slightly hypnotic effect. The different graded blues add another layer of interest, and the light comes through the shade well even on the dark blue ground

Meet the Maker:

Kittaka Bingo Gasuri

We went to Hiroshima expecting to find colourful Bingo style kasuri, but instead we came across the Kittaka workshop who primarily work in blue and white only. The exception is their use of persimmon, which is used as a natural orange dye.

They are the only remaining commercial weaver using persimmon yarn that we can find and the soft rusty tones of the persimmon make their fabric very popular for lampshades.
